Kryton parking brochure2012

  1. 1. The Erickson is a luxury, 20-story concrete and steel-trussed building with glass on all sides and an undulating shape that rises from the edge of False Creek in downtown Vancouver, surrounded by water on three sides. They chose Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) admixture in all below-grade concrete. KIM was used for the all below grade perimeter walls. In addition to the waterproof concrete, the builder also applied thousands of lineal feet of Kryton’s Krystol Waterstop System to seal the below grade construction joints, giving the joints the same level of crystalline protection that is in the concrete.The Erickson Underground Parking The Krystol Waterproofing System eliminated any need for exterior waterproofVancouver, B.C, Canada membranes, saved time and labour costs, and ensured a guaranteed leak-free building that can proudly bear the Arthur Erickson name. Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) admixture was used to waterproof the base slab and perimeter walls and the Krystol Waterstop System was used for all the cold joints in the slabs and walls. The Krystol Waterproofing System saved the team thousands of dollars and shaved 48 days off their construction schedule. “The implementation of all typical waterproofing methods would have been near impossible for our project. Particularly given the challenges we incurred during excavation: the 12-meter (39.4 feet) cutoff wall and extreme head pressure. We required an advanced waterproofing system that could withstand all of these obstacles especially during the casting of the matt slab.”Al Mashfa Private Hospital – Mr. A. Hamis Elmas, Project Manager & Architectural Consultant, Al Mashfa GroupUnderground Parking, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia For KK Times Square the developers used Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) admixture, surface-applied Krystol T1 & T2, Krystol Waterstop Joint System and Krystol Crack Repair System. The Krystol line of products met the developer’s requirements for: affordability and ease of application a system that would be long lasting, minimizing future repair costs and inconveniences a waterproofing system that could withstand significant hydrostatic pressure and KK Times Square Underground Parking protect against the corrosion of steel reinforcementsKota Kinabalu, Malaysia Offices in Canada, USA, UK, Singapore, Barbados, China, India, and Dubai.

  2. 2. Kryton takes the risk out creating durable waterproof concrete Extend the life of your parking structure with the use of Kryton’s parking structures. complete Waterproofing System. Parking structures are different from other concrete buildings • Repair of parking structures damaged by ground water penetration due to: REPAIR AND EXTEND THE LIFE and leaks • Reduced roofing, cladding, and climate control that result in • Stops water and waterborne contaminates entering the structure a more severe direct or indirect exposure to rain, snow, sunlight, temperature variations and airborne chlorides; OF EXISTING • Avoids premature deterioration of structural components • Extends the durability of your parking structure • Water and waterborne contaminates can cause corrosion of reinforcing steel and compromise the structural integrity of PARKING STRUCTURES the structure; • Vehicular occupancy that imposes heavy moving loads and deposits deicing salts; • Large plan size that magnifies the potential for damage caused by restraint of movements and forces associated with volumetric changes. Create a watertight structureAll of these factors influence the durability of parking structures and require consideration in their design.
